+ - James Gardner's new book/Foreword Ray Kurzweil

Submitted by
Sharon Heede
Sharon Heede writes "Following his first groundbreaking book, Biocosm, which argued that the purpose of cosmic evolution is the propagation of baby universes exhibiting the same life-friendly physical qualities as their parent-universe, James Gardner's new book, The Intelligent Universe: AI, ET, and the Emerging Mind of the Cosmos (New Page Books, February, 2007; $25.99), tells an extraordinary story of the probable future of the universe. Gardner's provocative examination of the most cutting-edge theories about the future of our universe and humanity itself, includes a substantial foreword by artificial intelligence guru Ray Kurzweil, bestselling author of The Age of Intelligent Machines, The Age of Spiritual Machines, Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever and The Singularity is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology. Gorgeous color photographs and easy-to-read diagrams and illustrations enhance the text.
